Though I have been a fan of Pixar since they came on the scene, I have never been compelled to buy any of their previous "Art of" books. With Up, I was so profoundly moved by this masterwork of a film that I had to find out everything I could about the process of making it! This book does that and more. Filled with carefully chosen preproduction art that shows the evolution of all the major characters and settings, this work also presents the evolution of the perspectives of the creators as they changed throughout the process.
The layout of the book takes inspiration from a prominent volume in the film, with similar colors, a "paste up" style and a very nice emboss hidden under the dust jacket. The paper quality is superb, as is the binding. This is a book that is meant to be looked at often and for a long time.
Even though I would love to have seen ALL the art from Up included, I came away feeling very satisfied in that I had seen more than expected, and all of the "most important" pieces. If you are like me and simply had to have more of Up, this book satisfies that urge and more. For everyone else, The Art of Up is a loving look at the masters of storytelling at work!
I have my fair share of Disney Pixar Art books, and while I love them all, this one is one of my favorites.
It's divided into classic Movie Art Book sections, but all the art is wonderful! The character design sketches for Mr. Fredrickson on the inside cover are just endearing, and I particularly like that aspect of the book.
While a lot of the art is digital now, much of it was also brilliant gouache, which is lovely.
I recommend this for any collector of art books, or even if you're just an avid fan of the movie, because it really is a wonderful companion to the film itself.
That said, they are a wonderful addition to your library, and I can't recommend the Pixar ones highly enough. :)
A fun part is that the story of the movie happens in my country, so watcing how the pixar team made a Map and analysis of the "National Park Canaima" is really fun, and made me proud of the way they put it in the movie
This is a great book, for a great movie
